We can't wait to see what YOU create!
And here is my take that I've called "After Rain";
The backing paper is by Swedish Maja Design, as are the fussy-cut tea pot and tea cups. The rest is Prima Fairybelle.
The soft colours of the palette remind me of lupins and cherry blossoms on a spring day just after it has rained. The petals and leaves glisten with the raindrops, looks like a fairy has sprinkled diamonds on them. So this time my journalling has no other bearing that prettiness and the scent of flowers after a mild spring shower leving everything dewy and fresh.
The pale yellow-green was a tricky one, I used some bling that had almost the right colour.
Fussy cut lavendar blooms from a paper from Maja Design layered with some Prima sweetness.
The evidence I used are flowers, tea cup accents, scallops (the journalling cards), texture paste and fabric, or to be correct, lace.
And that's it, nothing lengthy or overly complicated this time. I just wanted to make something pretty.
